... best place in the world (for me, due my obsession with animals, and mainly puppies), a dog adoption shop with free roaming puppies EVERYWHERE. I was in puppy heaven. I spent a lot of time smothering those puppies with lots of love. I was tempted to move to LA and adopt them all right then and there.
Cooz and I then headed home to get glammed up (as much as possible with our limited travelling wardrobes) for the MTV Movie ...

... with the blog….LA/large american urban sprawl/ city of angels/ you've all watched movies, you know where and what LA is. Seeing it in the flesh is kinda weird - you see the beauty and magic of it all but with the ugly warts and fat bits showing as well. firstly, you don't hear english being spoken that often. Maybe some kind of spanish or some chinese, but pretty much no english. Its a bit like London in that respect. It's a city of the world, not ...
... show, watched some animal actors and also saw a show about how special effects are done. A very full day! We loved it so much we decided to go again on Saturday. We had a bit of a slow start and arrived a bit late. We went to see the bits of the park that we didn't get to yesterday... The movie memorabilia stuff was excellent. We also did the studio tour again... Loved it that much!! Exhausted ...

We had no idea really how to get from the port in San Pedro, some 30 miles or an hour north to the fringes of Hollywood. Public transport is always my preference, but theres no such option at the port itself. So I decided a cab to the nearest metro station would be the best bet. It took around 15 minutes and $20 to get to Long Beach. We ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Maison 140 Beverly Hills
We stayed here last week for 1 night.
We got a great room which had the usual stuff (+ air/con), but didn't have in-room coffee. Had a small fridge and mini bar.
Nice fittings and decor, sort of cross between classic French and Japanese.
Avoid buying drinks from the downstairs bar; I nearly choked when I found out that 4 small mixers cost over $40. That makes London seem cheap!
Also don't bother with the inroom breakfast, its expensive and disappointing, apart from the great coffee.
Good location, but parking a $16 extra which I feel should be included.
Overall would recommend it as the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Great boutique hotel
stayed at maison 140 for 4 night in late may. very cute little place. the rooms are pretty small, but for the location and the price, it was a great choice! the continental breakfast hit the spot every morning. unfortunately we never made it to the afternoon wine hour. it's close to all the beverly hills shopping. one night we had dinner by the pool at the mosaic, right behind maison 140, and another night we had drinks at the peninsula, just across the street. i would recommend this hotel as a good value in a great cenral location.
Pretty, Personal and Pampering!
We had two rooms for three nights just after Christmas. As our son was only able to stay one night, we booked one standard room, for he and our daughter and one "Mandarin" (I think that was the upgrade) for us.
The staff was wonderful. They comp'ed our son's parking (He is a Marine and was headed back to Camp Pendleton.) The concierge was excellent. My daughter was fighting off a cold one afternoon and they brought her herbal tea and a hot pad! We all enjoyed the complimentary pre-dinner wine service in the cool little bar. We all LOVED this hotel. We will be back. Location, location, location! This place is a perfect spot.
A pleasant retreat in LA
The location of this hotel is wonderful - on a quiet, residential street away that feels far away from the hustle bustle that we expected of LA. Our room was a good size (although I think it was one of the bigger ones in the hotel) and the bed was enormous (actually it could have been a bit smaller to give us a little more space in the actual room). The decor is lovely and the free wine in the ultra trendy bar from 5.30 - 6.30 was a nice touch. We found the staff really friendly and helpful.
This hotel is quite lovely and unique but someone forgot to enlarge the rooms. My husband and I were bumping into each other during our four day trip. The bathroom was tiny and the shower was so small that I could barely move. We didn't even have enough counter space to place all our toiletries. This has never happened before.
I do love the staff. They were some of the nicest people I've ever encounted and I've stayed at Ritz Carlton's, Mandarin Orientals, and Peninsula's around the world. These staff people are friendly, approachable, and committed to you having a good time.
There is no pool...very sad.
The location is great.
Small rooms is an understatement!!
This hotel is so small!!! The way they make it look on the website is great!!! They must stand on a latter and crunch into the corners to get those shoots!! I am 5'11" 150 lb male, and the quarters are super tight!!!! The website also makes it sound like there sister property the "Avalon" is next door!!! yeah if a 15 minute car ride is next door to use a pool!!! The room was clean, the bathroom is beyond small and has super bad lighting, the shower is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" feet and yes the bath products are in a dispenser, kinda cheesy?! The staff was nice, and the internet access was broke!! For $150 a night in BH its a deal, the location is great, however if you can afford the extra $50 - $100 a night, there are much better places to stay in the same locale. For two people plus luggage the room was TIGHT. We moved to Mosaic for a larger room at $50 bucks more. Well worth it-
Good decor but that's it
small. trendy decor. No bathtub! Philosophy toiletries BUT from dispenser on wall. Poor lighting. Only internet access was from OLD IBM in lobby. No valet parking. No one to assist with luggage. Front desk's directions to restaurant got us totally lost (don't trust mapquest blindly)
Boutique without the attitude
a gem of a hotel in a quiet street right in Beverly Hills.
even though it's a little trendy, the staff was very friendly and didn't have an attitude.
i got a great rate through quibook.
rooms are small but have great beds and linens.
At Home in the Maison 140
Great little hotel, located within walking distance of Beverly Hills. Small rooms but very stylish. Philosphy bathroom products. HUGE beds. Great little bar for pre-dinner drinks BUT staff were a little incompetent.
We were delighted to find the small and very European
Beverly House in the midst of busy Beverly Hills. The rooms are not large, but are certainly adequate for two. Tidy, comfortable, with a quiet lobby and an excellent location for any destination in BH.
